This is a custom programme played in
The Gap clothing stores in early 1993. This tape was in a lot of several
acquired through an online auction. Unlike the March tape, this production focusses on British acts, especially new wave and electronic. See "Timeless Pop" #9380 for AEI Employee Mike Brady's rather revealling memories of producing custom tapes for these guys!

Re: Amazing Gap May 1993 In-Store Tape by AEI
Hey Mike! Glad to have you here!
Will do; it'll be a few days or so before I'm able to contact you since things have been pretty busy lately, but maybe we can work something out. You may need to add an exception for sdf.org in your MSN mail spam blocker since they have been known to reject imcoming mail from that domain (even though SDF isn't really known to originate spam, but, well, Microsoft).
